I am 63 years old and have been struggling with what I think is polymyalgia rheumatica for almost 4 years now. However I have not been officially diagnosed with this condition. I also believe I am getting GCA also.
My muscles hurt and every major muscle groups in my body it's getting harder and harder to do anything. Are used to work out every day and now I can't even walk a 10th of a mile or do anything without it in creasing my pain exponentially.
I tried prednisone and it made me feel terrible I was sick my muscles got very weak and shaky and I was very moody and I have to work so I can't be having irritable outbursts at work . Then when I tapered off of it for three weeks I was sick with adrenal insufficiency and it was terrible. I'm not sure what to do now .
Not being able to exercise I feel like I'm just slowly dying and deteriorating. I'd love to have other people to talk to you and hear their experiences.
